Uses Of Zolmist Nasal Spray (Zolmitriptan):

Zolmist Nasal Spray is specifically designed to be used during a migraine attack, as it is a fast-acting medication that can help alleviate symptoms quickly. The nasal spray form of zolmitriptan is particularly useful for individuals who experience nausea and vomiting during a migraine attack, as it bypasses the digestive system and is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the nasal passages.
